    Pros

    Good pay and benefits
    Smart people
    Flexible
    Winner's Circle

    Cons

    Very Cliquey - if you ain't in the right fraternity, forget it. Very exclusive.
    Annual Change
    Even if you perform, your job is not safe
    Constantly looking over your shoulder for someone coming with the knife

    Advice to Management

    End the exclusivity
    Promote on merit, not on familiarity
    Allow people to develop in their role

    I have been working at SAP full-time

    Pros

    Top management want to do the right thing and improve the working lives of all staff. Technology still makes a great difference for customers

    Cons

    Managers very mixed in skill level and behaviours. Often hard to feel part of future when restructuring is so unsettling and managers do not know where they are going. Very political environment.

    Advice to Management

    Weed out weaker managers and develop leaders who will stand for their people

    Thank you for the input. We agree that leadership should be inspiring and right for the job, and we remain focused to maintain strong leadership at our company.

    I have been working at SAP full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    great vision, incredible people, winners that want to make the world a better place. Great place for young talent. Office is beautiful, wonderful facilities, free lunch, and many extras that make the work environment wonderful. The people at SAP are the best, and nearly all would do anything to help.

    Cons

    Level 2 & 3 leadership poorly trained, not qualified. Overcrowded, redundant teams, political. SVP layer of company is a mess. Vision is clear at the top of the company, but then at the SVP layer that vision is twisted into a departmental, political battleground, a game of thrones. Stock and other equity options are not great. Brilliant, tenured, experienced people that bleed for the company are gifted very little stock. BAD place for young talent (leadership at people managerial level is weak, uncertain about how to lead). Not unusual to have a new boss every 3-9 months resulting in limited understanding of skill, trust, relationship.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time qualifying the SVP's, Stop selecting leadership based on your personal relationship. Loyalty, tenure, and performance does not make for a good people manager. LISTEN more.

    Spend less time trying to recruit the millennials, and more time hiring strong, experienced leaders. The young talent will then come to the company and STAY. Increase the equity package, and reward the great talent that has been with the company for 10 plus years.

    I worked at SAP full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits, good amenities like free lunch, snacks, coffee, refreshments, flexible work hours.

    Cons

    Lots of gossip, egotistical and cady decision making, rather than what is best for business/program/project. I got the role right out of college and there was very little guidance, and at many times I wondered what value the company was getting out of my work.

    Advice to Management

    There are some great minds and people at SAP Silicon Valley, and there are some that absolutely should not be managing people.

    Pros

    Good pay, good customer base and net new market opportunity. SAP goes all out to make their employees feel valued.

    Cons

    Crazy amounts of admin work really drains and slows you down. Multiple updates to various VPs weekly. Your department is usually isolated and your success can depend on your boss as it's required to include them in most deals.

    Thank you so much for your review. It's unfortunate to hear of the issues with management. The mission of our leaders is to drive innovation, but we want our employees to enjoy what they do.

    I worked at SAP (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    - Quality people committed to delivering success (despite many self-imposed constraints)
    - Market leadership and brand recognition
    - Strong partner ecosystem (waiting for a wave of ERP upgrades with S/4HANA)

    Cons

    - Customer aggravation with too many product focused go-to-market resources
    - Management focus on quarterly results vs. long term customer success / satisfaction
    - Inability to innovate organically (also responsible for inflated valuation of acquisitions)
    - Contemporary HR processes that prevent the most qualified leaders from rising to the top

    Advice to Management

    Recognize the reality of what is takes to be successful in the field. Separate strategic customer opportunities from quarterly tactics to push more products into accounts. Reduce reliance on audits to force existing customers to buy more based on contract non-compliance.

    Cons

    Company going thru a rough patch, culture is difficult to understand as an American, constant reorganizing makes roles nebulous and requires politicking to survive.
